Terry was highly recommended to me and fulfilled all my expectations. She was a pleasure to work with and always responsive. I live out of state and had the stressful task of selling a condominium in Chicago during the Covid-19 shutdown. Terry's help and attention to detail was invaluable. I needed to have the unit painted before listing. Terry met with a painter in my absence and chose a perfect color palette. Her virtual staging was fantastic. The unit went under contract in less than a week. I couldn't have done it without her expertise and guidance! Terry is a highly skilled professional and a pleasure to work with. I'm grateful she was recommended to me and I definitely recommend her to you!


I had such a wonderful experience buying a house with Terry. As a first time homebuyer, relocating to Chicago from Ohio, I was unsure about the process, but with Terry as my realtor everything went better than I could have imagined. I could not be in Chicago for every step of the process but she was more than willing to preview units I found online and even attended the home inspection. I felt as if Terry truly had my best interest in mind. She was not afraid to point out flaws and brought great insights about the Chicago market. She assisted in every step of the process. She is a great ally to have on your side when buying your first home.

Having Terry as our realtor was a truly positive and successful experience. Not only did Terry find the perfect rental property for us while we assessed Chicago as a place to settle, but she also helped us secure a home that exceeded all our expectations. She was immensely patient and flexible and respected our feedback as we narrowed down our selection. She offered honest advice and was knowledgeable and creative in her view of the properties and their potential. Once we had found the home we wanted, she put all her energy into helping us understand the purchase process and most importantly, acquiring the property at the price we wanted. Terry has always provided the perfect balance of care and professionalism, adding personal touches to the process and offering an extremely high level of service, pre- and post-sale. We would not hesitate to call on her again in the future.


When you purchase a property while living in another state, that complication adds to the stress level. We were fortunate to find Terry. She made the whole process enjoyable. She took care of the transaction from beginning to end; setting up a title company, an insurance agency, a home inspector and a real estate lawyer. She went beyond our expectations. She is a true professional. Without hesitation I recommend Terry for your real estate needs. My son recently move to Chicago and used Terry with the same results.

Terry Phillips has been our realtor for buying and selling our homes over the past 14 years. We continue to rely on her as she is simply invaluable in everything from her knowledge of the city, to staging, to negotiating price and marketing. She brings her vast experience and expertise to serve your needs in the best way possible. Terry's caring, professionalism, strong work ethic, and ability to understand her clients on a personal level, makes her an indispensable guide during the critical transactions and decisions in the buying and selling process. You truly have a partner in Terry. We cannot say enough about the service she's provided for all our real estate needs.


We came to know of Terry Philips by her targeted and smart mailings featuring recent sales in the building. I was impressed by her knowledge of and enthusiasm for the building. Terry proved to be insightful, hard working, responsive, and available 24/7. She worked diligently with us to get our property ready for sale and to price it appropriately. Terry showed the condo well and stressed its many qualities. She was most valuable during the negotiation phase netting a full asking price offer. It sold surprisingly quickly but exactly as Terry said it would just a few days earlier.


Thank you very much for your effort, diligence and dedication. You made the whole process of selling our old apartment much less painful than it could have been. Your advice has been invaluable, you always stayed professional and kept your cool. You really went above and beyond what is usually expected between agents and clients. I will always be happy to speak to any potential clients to share my experience.


I wanted to thank you again for taking such wonderful care of [our son]! He thinks you are the greatest! It is such a pleasure to work with an agent who works so hard for her client…You did a fabulous job finding a great property and negotiating on his behalf.
Thank you for going above and beyond...


Want to sell your home? Hire Terry, it's as simple as that. She sold my 2-flat in 5 days. Terry's attention to detail is amazing. She doesn't miss a thing. Details sell a place. She ‘edited' my apartment and staged it with flair and good taste. Then came the professional photos. She scheduled them on a day and time that would be optimal for light to be streaming in just so, which translated to 16 beautiful images on the Internet and a professional and artistic 4-sided brochure. Terry knows what it is to be human and go through stress and loss and will say "Everything will be OK, don't worry!" She is truly there for you. She is the best!

Stacy and Sven

I think we are in shock that the house is actually sold and we're "done" with everything! We truly believe that the help you and your team gave us made all of the difference. If anyone in the area is ever on the lookout for a realtor we will definitely be recommending you!

Michelle and Michael

We had such a wonderful experience working with Terry! We have already referred her to friends and will continue to do so. Not only was she genuinely interested in meeting us and helping us sell our condo, she has become a friend and someone we hope to stay in touch with always. She assisted with every detail from helping to stage our condo, which made all the difference, to pricing and final negotiations. She was so knowledgeable about the market and always available throughout the process - to have made money and walk away with a check says everything in today's market! She truly went above and beyond and is the reason we were able to purchase our first new home. We will always be grateful for having met her!


Working with Terry is a professional pleasure. Having sold two condos and bought two condos in the last 20 years, the transactions with Terry, as my realtor, could not have been more successful. She is very thorough and resourceful in all aspects related to buying and selling.

Lena and Tom

You're a total pro - you make this fun! We never thought the home selling process could be this way. You are a rare find. We thank you over and over!!


You are a "breath of fresh air" in an industry that has become increasingly challenging to navigate as a seller and a buyer. Your honesty, professionalism and knowledge, about every aspect of the process, are truly impressive! With your help I found the home of my dreams and sold my former condo in record time (less than 2 weeks)…remarkable in today's marketplace. You bring sophistication, class and business savvy to the table.


From day one you have been more than a realtor, but a true friend. You not only looked out for me and my housing needs, but seemed to truly care and want to help.
I have appreciated everything you have done.


The process of buying and selling a home can be overwhelming but you always helped me through it with your great advice and resources. Although I don't anticipate moving for many years, I will absolutely call you first.

Kelly, Eric and Grace

You are truly the kindest and most thoughtful person we have come to know in Chicago. We are so very thankful to you for helping us find the "home of our dreams"! We could not have found such a "perfect fit"without you! Thank you...Thank you...Thank you for EVERYTHING!

Shirley A. Olin, Coldwell Banker - Glencoe Office

You are a shining example to me of what a fine, professional Realtor should be, and I´m thanking you for all you do in taking such good care of a client.

Robert & Trisha

We will certainly refer you to any of our friends and family in Chicago who are in need of a top-notch realtor!


I refer you to clients and friends in need of your professional services, not merely because of how I feel about you personally, but more so because of your professional, skillful and caring approach to helping those you work with.

Thank you so much for finding me a beautiful home. If I know somebody who is moving or looking, I will definitely give them your name and an excellent recommendation.

Edith & Dick

Thank you seems too weak of an expression to tell you how much we appreciated all your help, your time, your clear thinking, your knowledge, your advice, and especially your understanding!

Sara and Steve

We owe you a huge thank you for all your work selling our condo and finding our new home. We could not be happier with the results! You made a stressful time a great deal easier and as always were a pleasure to work with. You are a great realtor Terry and a lovely person. Thank you again!

Mark, Housecalls Inspections

Terry is among the most dedicated and hard working of any person I've worked with. She always goes the extra mile for her clients. I've seen it time and again - a true picture postcard consummate professional.


For a somewhat difficult transaction, working with someone as pleasurable and professional as yourself made it as enjoyable a transaction as I can remember!!! If I wasn't in the biz myself I would refer you to my friends and family which is the highest compliment of all.

Whitney, Dave and Zach

You have gone above and beyond. You have made our hectic lives that much easier. Truly, we don´t know how we could have bought our new home without your assistance. You were such sense of peace. Thank you.

Frank Mitrick, Real Tek Realty

Thank you for all your help in closing
[our transaction]. You are a true professional and an asset to the real estate community, and also a nice person.


The items you have chosen for my home are perfect. I cannot thank you enough for all the time and effort you have put into staging my home. With you in charge, I know it will sell. Many thanks.

The McKeoughs

Thank you for your tireless efforts and unrelenting optimism in selling our home. We are very grateful.

Scott and Erin

We love our place and our neighborhood. Thanks again for all of your help in finding us a place that we are proud to call home.
The greatest endorsement that I can give Terry Philips is that she has been my one and only agent for six real estate transactions. In this case actions certainly speak louder than words.
Throughout each process Terry Philips has demonstrated the highest level of expertise in knowledge and negotiations.
As an added benefit she is an upbeat person who preservers until "the deal is done."
I have and will continue to recommend Terry Philips as a top real estate broker.                 -AK Haggard
